Ham Or Turkey?

I know back when I was growing up, it always seemed like we had a Family tradition of Turkey for Thanksgiving, Ham for Christmas and then Turkey for New Years. Now a days most people are lucky if they can afford more than these 2 meals with something special. Now as an adult, I prefer Turkey over ham, but right now don't think about offering us any Turkey as we are both Turkey'd out. Now if it was something like Prime Rib this would be a nice addition, but getting expensive unless you go get some at a Restaurant somewhere. So which are you? ~~TINA

I only like small amounts of either. When I was a child New Year was almost as big a deal as Christmas and we'd have another huge meal just like Christmas.

Yes, it seems either due to Budgets etc New Years has just become another day, and no real special food is enjoyed.

@KrauseHome Any of the family that we didn't catch up with at Christmas always came at New Year or we'd go to them. It wasn't until I was going out as a teenager that I celebrated New Year's Eve.

We have a small chicken. Ham is not our favorite and can be salty.

I do my dinner on Christmas Eve now which includes both turkey and ham. I just make a Butterball stuffed turkey roll (except this year I didn't get a stuffed one) and a half ham. There are only six of us and we had enough for leftovers. In the past when I cooked on Christmas Day as well I did ham on Christmas Eve and turkey on Christmas Day. Back in the day growing up, it was pretty much always turkey for Christmas at my mom's. Once she made a few capons instead. Ham was usually reserved for Easter I think.

I know for us it was because my Mom loved Ham so much is why we always did it for Christmas usually. We have a potluck with our church on Sunday to help end the New Year, and because it is also 5th Sunday that we have to cook something for, so we may just cheat and go out to eat for New Years

We always had turkey for Thanksgiving and Ham for Christmas. I have had both of these recently though so I made meatballs for Christmas. I had a few ham slices that I put out..but meatballs and rolls were the main event. Along with plenty of holiday themed sides.

Hey now this sounds good. I know I have been at Parties before in the past where these were one of the main meats served. So nothing wrong with that.

Never Turkey for us, nor ham, we have other traditional foods for Christmas and the New Year. We usually serve cotechino and lentils (see photo) for the good fortune the first day of the year. For Christmas roasted stuffed chicken and roasted beef with oven roasted potatoes.

@KrauseHome I like the three, so I change every year, not to make always the same thing.

For Christmas my mother cooked a ham and a small turkey. Usually it’s just turkey.

It is interesting now how so many people now do both. I prefer Turkey but will take a small piece of ham usually

About four years ago when the price of turkey and ham went up. We decided no more turkey or ham unless we can get it for a good price. So now we have a nce steak or pork spare ribs. Our favorite meal.

Ham is very expensive. We were lucky and got a butterball for like .89 a pd for Thanksgiving and then given a Free turkey dinner for Christmas

Yes, we will probably go out as well. Probably to one of the all you can eat places so we can have a little bit of a selection depending on the weather and the traffic.
